Aveda Spotlight: Pramasana

You wouldn’t use regular bar soap to wash your face, right? Well you shouldn’t use shampoo to wash your scalp, either! The skin on our heads needs special treatment to get truly clean—and now Aveda has a solution. The new Pramasana Purifying Scalp Cleanser and Protective Scalp Concentrate will cleanse the scalp and remove product build-up in a way that shampoo just can’t.

Cleanse your scalp. Shampoo is for hair!

Everyone with a scalp. Pramasana has been proven to help scalps from normal to dry to oily, and the accompanying exfoliating scalp brush with its special looped bristle design can help with all those issues, plus reduce dandruff and redness.


  • The cleanser gives a deeper clean that is specially formulated for your scalp, and instantly balances sebum levels (sebum is that oily/waxy matter that comes from glands within your hair follicles)
  • Wintergreen-derived salicylic acid exfoliates your scalp—removing pollution build-up from city living, beachy water, or any other environmental output
  • The aroma is amazing— grapefruit, neroli, and cypress combine for a light clean smell
  • As with all Aveda products, Pramasana cleanser and concentrate are cruelty-free and never tested on animals

Start by dry brushing the scalp using the Pramasana Exfoliating Scalp Brush—it not only helps loosen build-up and impurities, but also helps increase microcirculation.

Next, apply the cleanser to wet or dry scalp and massage in (extra treat for you—ask your partner to help and get a bonus head rub!). After rinsing, follow with your normal shampoo/conditioner routine. It should be used before every shampoo.

Once your hair is clean, use the concentrate as a leave-in treatment by parting your hair while damp and applying the product directly to your scalp with the included dropper. Massage it in & do not rinse—the aroma and benefits will stay with you all day.


  • The 3-part system is designed to work together – use the cleanser first, the concentrate after shampooing, and the brush to remove build-up at any point.
  • Works with any Aveda shampoo – if you’re new to Aveda, we recommend starting with Shampure, or come in for a personal recommendation


  • Cut, Color or Blowout – your results will be better and you’ll leave feeling fresher than ever
  • Facial Treatments – take care of the skin on your head while you take care of the skin on your face
  • Aroma Massage – adding Pramasana Protective Scalp Concentrate to your scalp massage during a full-body experience will serve double duty – and help your results last longer
